GCEC Wireless and the Ministerial Alliance held their second annual backpack and school supply giveaway on Aug. 9. The event is always a big hit with the kids as evidenced by the line that formed outside the Verizon Store before it opened at 10 a.m. Children got their free backpacks and went through supply lines where they packed what they needed into their new backpacks before getting free hot dogs and snacks. As expected, there lots of smiles to go around.
